Life Song

Life is a new song
with thoughts
like lyrics which flow
from the mind

Life is a lonely song
musician and singer
a one-man band
we play alone

Life is a sad song
of heartache and loss
the melody muted
drowned by tears

Life is an old song
a rhythmic tempo
inherent, set by
the beating heart

Life is a sweet song
harmonious ballad
telling of love
a uniting duet
